Art, music and culture are the name of the game in sunny Brisbane this month.

Brisbane Street Art Festival

Date: 6-14 February
Location: Various

It’s time for an art attack! But we’re not just talking about plain old run-of-the-mill galleries and exhibitions. Rather, this February, the Brisbane Street Art Festival is taking art to the streets in a brand new festival project that aims to celebrate Brisbane’s vibrant and uniquely independent arts culture. Over one week, the festival will host over 15 large-scale murals in Fortitude Valley and the surrounding inner city area. There’ll also be a bunch of live music, market stalls, fashion shows and more – so get involved! Find out more

Lindo maravilhoso! It’s one of the biggest festivals in the world, and it’s coming to your doorstep right here in beautiful Brisbane. Get your dancing shoes on and take to the streets this February to celebrate Brazilian Carnaval – a festival of rhythm, dance, music and colour. Dance your way through markets, food stalls, musical performances and FREE dance classes at the Boundary Street Markets to fuel up before the main event, when over 150 colourful performers will take over Boundary Street for a giant Brazilian-themed party.
